Hon. Mahama Ayariga, the Member of Parliament (MP) for Bawku Central has denied claims that suggest he is the male actor in a leaked sex video which involves a Chinese lady.
The video which has been in circulation on social media for days now sees the woman, purported to be Aisha Huang, 31, a Chinese woman believed to be engaging in sexual acts with top Ghanaian politicians and security officers in exchange for protection to engage in illegal mining in the country.
However, the former Minister of Environment, Science Technology and Innovation has described this as a “dastardly and barbaric act” while adding that “I categorically deny the mindless suggestion that I am the male actor in the video and all the inferences it draws.”

I have become aware of the circulation of a video on social media purportedly showing me engaged in a sexual intercourse with a lady of Asian origin.
Those involved in this dastardly and barbaric act seem to suggest that I provided the lady and her company with a licence to engage in “galamsay” mining during my tenure as the Minister of Environment, Science Technology and Innovation in exchange for sexual favors.
I categorically deny the mindless suggestion that I am the male actor in the video and all the inferences it draws. Those who orchestrated this agenda and promoted it has only succeeded in giving us a glimpse of the crude and the unfulfilled lifes they live.
I want to assure the people Bawku and Ghanaians that I am grateful and respect the opportunity they have given me to serve as their Member of Parliament and the different portfolios I was privileged to work. The thought that I serve at the behest of the people never departs me, it is what informs and drives every decision I make; this will not change.
In accordance with my Islamic faith I forgive the architects of this video and agenda, I see these orchestrations as negative campaigning against targeted opponents and an evidence of our debased politics.
